September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”
September 20, 2017, 04:32:32 am Christian40 says: "The most popular Hepatitis B vaccine is nothing short of a witch’s brew including aluminum, formaldehyde, yeast, amino acids, and soy. Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

(ie, the infrastructure is very bad here b/c for many years, they were grossly underspent on. 1st Tim 6:10, the god of materialism has its roots firmly in the West) And remember once upon a time ago when shacking up b/w straight couples drew shock awe?

Exodus 20:5  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

UK Christian Group Asked to Remove Ads Claiming God Can Heal

A Christian organization in England has been asked to take down claims stating that God can heal certain illnesses after a complaint from an "unofficial adviser to the media."
The Advertising Standards Authority, a media watchdog in London, accused the Bath-based Healing on the Streets (HOTS) group of giving false hope to the sick, preventing those with specific illnesses including cancer, asthma, and other conditions from seeking medical assistance due to their prayer claims.

But the organization asserted that all they were doing was offering prayer for people, giving them the chance to encounter a Heavenly Father who loved them, the group explained to The Christian Post.

"It's up to the individual to decide for themselves if they would like to receive prayer," said Paul Skelton, the founder of HOTS. "We don't force them, we don't make guarantees, we simply offer and that's all."

But Hayley Stevens, the blogger who submitted the complaint to the ASA asking them to investigate the group, believed that there was potential "for damage to be done," especially for people who already mistrusted doctors and conventional medicine.

Stevens, a humanist and co-host of the Righteous Indignation Podcast, initially witnessed the group offering healing to people outside of a cathedral during a visit to Bath last year and began researching for more details on their website.

Sounds like a false accusation to me.
